Yeah, this is a hide posting. Not because it is bizarre (it is not, if
anything quite interesting actually) but because it is entirely in
another language than english. As far as i understand it, the common
agreement on this sort of postings is that articles posted on imc-uk
that are written in other languages than english *need* either a
translation, or at least a comprehensive summary written in english of
what the posting is about.
If they don't contain the above, then they get hidden. And, as i
understand it, the main reason why they get hidden is because there may
be articles posted in languages that none of the people involved in the
day to day moderation of the site can understand, so in that sort of
situation, we would not have a possibility of knowing if falls within
the current editorial guidelines.
